Welcome to our itineraries page! Tanzania is a large country, and is actually one of the most complicated in terms of working out which parks to combine (true for Northern Tanzania mainly). It can therefore be a good idea to browse through these options as some inspiration for your trip. Something may catch your eye about the Ngorongoro region which makes it a must-see for you, or you may fall head over heels with a lodge in the wild west of the country.

We can craft any itineraries to suit you entirely, providing that it is all logistically possible with your time frame and budget.So please note this page is merely here to give you an idea of some of our favourite combinations. We hope this serves as a useful tool for not just inspiration, but so you can work out the kind of trip you can get for your budget and time frame. 

Happy browsing! 

Northern Itineraries



A GUIDE TO TANZANIA SAFARI HOLIDAY ITINERARIES


All of our 50 itineraries are tailor made for each individual client, according to their budget, requirements and preferences.  We don't sell pre-packaged trips of any kind.  However, in order to show you how some of the different elements can fit together, and some of the kinds of trips that previous clients have taken, we set out here a few example itineraries.  These are for illustration purposes only and should not be read restrictively.  Your trip can include elements of any combination of any of these itineraries - the only limitations are your budget and your timeframe!

Below please select the kind of trip you are after. If you are unsure, here is a little guide... 

  • Northern - Northern Tanzania including Ngorongoro and The Serengeti
  • Southern - The Selous, Ruaha, Mahale and Katavi
  • Honeymoon - These are a selection of the most romantic spots on the continent. 
  • Family - When taking the family, you need to be sure all ages are entertained and the lodges don't break the bank when paying for little ones, so here are our favourite picks throughout the country. 

Then select the style of trip you are after; 

  • Adventure - This is still not camping as we know it! Expect here rustic, but comfortable and authentic accommodation. No frills, but no compromising on still exceptional levels of comfort and service. 
  • Classic - A step up from adventure, this is a perfect style for those who are after a barefoot luxury experience. With very high quality camps, but no super luxury frills. 
  • Premier - For those who are lovers of luxury... Not much is missing on these trips! 
  • Expert - If you are after the very best the country has to offer, this is for you. Private pools, butlers and even private safari parks... This is the creme de la creme of Tanzania holidays.

    The best beach lodge in east Africa!  As a company we have explored the entire coast and there nowhere that gets near to Ras Kutani.  It is ‘bare foot beach luxury’ at its best and comes at fantastic value.  It is secluded, private and spectacularly beautiful. Team this with fantastic rooms, lovely food and great service and we have ourselves a champion of beach lodges.

  • Lake Manze is a genuinely fantastic yet simple safari camp.  It has a prime position on the edge of a beautiful lake and is within shouting distance of pods of bathing hippo.  No electricity in the lodge gives it a rustic edge, yet its comfort and charm give it an old world gravitas that other camps can’t touch.  The camp is not about five star luxury, but in terms of safari and value for money, there are none better.
     

  • Mdonya is without doubt the best value camp in Ruaha National Park.  It has that same charm and character of its famous sister camp in the Selous, Lake Manze Tented Camp.  Mdonya may be basic and simple but this is what Ruaha is all about.  It is a fierce and wild park and Mdonya is in a very wild area of it.  With its great location you can rely on there being quality game viewing and you don’t necessarily need to spend that extra cash if luxury is not your priority.  Mdonya and has always delivered and we have a lot of faith in this little camp.

    Breezes is exceptional value for money.  It may be a large hotel but it delivers a trusty and excellent product.  It is our favourite in the ‘large hotel’ category and perfect for families and honeymooners alike.  Having been running for longer than most of the other properties on the island you can expect the years of experience to shine through.  The facilities are great and the lovely long pristine beach makes its size all worthwhile.

    Impala Selous is placed right on the banks of the Rufiji River, in an incredible position for spotting the local inhabitants.  It’s not nearly as expensive as its extremely luxurious competitors but very close in terms of service.  The raised tents offer every comfort, with two of them being adjoining ‘family’ tents. A very friendly camp, great for children and offering the best of the Selous.

Set within the private managed corridor that also has the up-market Chem Chem and Manyara Ranch. Maramboi is a cost effective lodge for those keen on visiting Tarangire who prefer to avoid the bustle of the northern areas of the park and want to keep costs down.

  • An affordable Lodge in the Ngorongoro Highlands which is loacated between Ngorongoro and Manyara.  We often use this lodge in the highlands as a base to visit nearby villages as well as a game drive in Manyara and the Crater

  • The Serengeti offering from the Kirurumu brand, Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is a great value mobile tented camp. The camp moves between Seronera and Ndutu while a second camp runs from June through to October in Kogatende. It's a very good camp in its own right but if you're looking to see Mara River crossings without blowing the budget this camp stands out head and shoulders above the rest.
